    STRIKE!! WHAT IS NEEDED IS A REVOULOUTION AND DEMONSTRATON BY THOSE STEPPED ON INCLUDING THE YOUTH. TIENNEMAN SQUARE, BROOKLY ,BALTIME AND FURGERSON ARE PRIME EXAMPLES OF HOW THE POWER STRUCTURE RESPONDS WHEN THEY ARE EMBARRASED ON THE WORLD STAGE. NYC BTI TOURISM EMPLOYEES WERE TERMINATED AND FINANCILALY SHAFTED AND THROWN TO THE CURB. NOTHING IN THE PAST HAS WORKED AND MANY IN BGI HAS LET THE RUM AND SEA BLIND MANY INTO A STUPOR.. EVERY ONE WHO THEN ARE BUYING MILLION DOLLAR CONDOS WILL THINK AGAIN BECAUSE LIVING IN LITTLE ENGLAND IS NOW A MYTH AND SIMULAR TO THE WAY BIG us CITIES TREAT THE VOICLESS.

    Non payment of unemployment money, people still waiting since last year.

  5. Until Bajans wake up to what is happening in this 2X4 country we will all perish. Hurricane season starts next month, maybe we will get a RED FLAG. What a sorry lot of Politicians in have here !!!!!!!! No where else in the world citizens are treated like this unless we have a communist state, maybe that’s where we are heading !!!!! , and no word from the opposition.
